Connect to the network via Ethernet

How to connect to the Amherst network through an Ethernet connection.

Instructions: 
  1. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into your computer's Ethernet port. 
  2. Plug the other end of the cable into the Ethernet port on the wall of your room. This port will look slightly larger than a typical telephone jack.
  3. Register your computer on the Amherst College network.

The head of an Ethernet cable is larger than that of a phone cable.
